  • Amazing tour, learned a lot about our first President. Our tour guide was very entertaining and enthralling. So glad we came!
  • Nice museum with lots of local history located adjacent to the well preserved Washington headquarters. Good tour guide who was very knowledgeable of the history of the house.
  • Fun day trip, wonderful tour guide. Very informative

Most of his work does not specify a location, idealizing even further, but in this case this unusual land feature, which today is a state park, get specific mention
